I am new here and was going through some of the discussions when I noticed your email. I have had Macarel Tabbies my whole life and this is what kind of tabby your cat is. You can tell this by the marking on their faces above their eyes. The stripes form an "M". You can check your local bookstore or do a web search for all the info on this breed. They are an amazing cat to have.
